Renu has greeted us with his latest release "Hello How are You" which delivers beautiful melodic electronica with an urban twist. Deep bass, hard beats, and chilled melodies are a reoccurring characteristic of his sound.
Reza Nugraha, the name behind Renu, was born and raised in Indonesia and now resides in California. His bold style is evident in "Hello How Are You" and displays a strong hip-hop influence. With heavy, rhythmic beats layered atop warm synths Renu easily creates some chilled down-tempo tracks.
Each song on the EP is complemented by one other adding to the overall flow. Short vignettes such as "Twotwentyfour" are added for nice breaks and demonstrate his exquisite sensibility for ambient tones. "Come in and Sleep with the Moon" mixes his urban style with a more familiar nostalgic sound.
The EP closely echoes his debut release on the U-cover Cd-r Limited label. If you enjoy this release be sure to support him and pick up a copy.
